You all know I love Origins but I haven't been using many of their products recently. I still use Eye Doctor* and Make A Difference Plus+ Serum* every day because I always feel my skin is lacking something when I don't use those. I can tell that any pump of the serum now, it's going to be empty which will be a sad day. As always, my eyes have been very dry around the brow bone so this has been helping it become not as flakey. I think there may be a underlying problem as to why it's so dry in that area, but let's save that for another day.
With the Origins serum, I've been layering it with either a lotion or another serum. Call me crazy but the other night I used three different serums and then a moisturiser on top. I've mentioned before that I love Aurelia Revitalise & Glow Serum* a lot before, but I pulled it out of the stocks a week or so back and I haven't regretted it. It really helps perk my dull skin up on the days I can't be too bothered with my make up. On other days I've been using Aesop Parsley Seed Hydrator which is a lovely thin moisturiser/lotion, full of antioxidants for the skin. For people with oily skin, this would suit your skin perfectly well as a moisturiser. But if you have skin like me and you need a lot of layers, this acts as a serum.
To go on top of all these serums, I've been reaching for two moisturisers. A cheaper option would be Organic Surge Night Cream* which is a simple damn right good moisturiser. It takes a little to work into the skin but by the morning, the skin feels plump and hydrated. Everything you look for in a night cream, right? The other one is another Aesop product, their Camellia Nut Facial Hydrating Cream. It's suited for very dry skin, as they have a moisturiser for each skin type. One of the main ingredients is chamomile bud to help soothe any sensitive skin people may have and there is sandalwood and rosemary leaf for instant hydration.
Lets just say that I'm thinking of my skin like my body, it needs a lot of layers to keep the hydration levels up.
